Recipe by B. B. Backwoods Bak

I use this recipe whenever I make pumpkin pie. What I like the most about this recipe is that it is so adaptable. If I have extra eggs on hand, I add a few extra. If I don't have enough milk I add water. The spices can be changed to suit your taste buds. My original recipe called for 2 cups of milk and 1/2 cup of cream or evaporated milk. I use straight milk but it does make a richer pie if you use a 1/2 cup of cream! For those of you who can or freeze your own pumpkin, like we do, I always drain the pumpkin in a sieve to get rid of any extra water from the pumpkin. I prefer to make this in a casserole dish without a crust. It is wonderful warm!
